Description & Analysis

The 1909-O is quite scarce in all grades, even in XF and AU. In the latter grade, this is one of the hardest in the series to locate, per David Lawrence's book. In a letter cited in the April, 1997 Louis E. Eliasberg Sr. Collection catalog by Bowers and Merena, Lawrence further states, 'The 1909-O is the scarcest of all the New Orleans Mint Barber quarters in most grades, especially if with a decent strike. It is on the want list of just about everyone who wants to build a Mint State set.'
